In wake of coronavirus crisis, Brooklyn Nets create Resource Hub

The Brooklyn Nets, in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, have created the Brooklyn Nets Resource Hub, a listing of online resources, in categories like Education, Health & Wellness, Food, and Volunteer Opportunities.
It states:
The Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center have always been committed to connecting with our community and engaging with our fans and neighbors. Now more than ever, we want to be there for you.
That's both commendable and a wee bit pious, since the team and arena have generally been committed to putting their best face forward, which means, for example, failing to tell neighbors about the contours of non-ticketed events that could could affect foot and vehicular traffic.

One closer look

Here's a look at the food category, which does include useful listings like the city Department of Education's site for free grab-and-go meals Monday through Friday.


Then again, it also includes a link to (advertiser) Anheuser-Busch's "Open for Take-Out Initiative," an online database that is very preliminary. I searched in my neighborhood and found... nothing, though there are numerous restaurants that do offer takeout and delivery.
